About This Course

Organic chemistry is of great scientific and practical importance. Currently, there is a huge amount of organic compounds of synthetic and natural origin, without which the life of a modern person is not possible. Organic substances form the basis of the chemical industry. Fundamental knowledge in the field of organic chemistry is necessary for all chemists.

The course "Organic Chemistry" is intended for students of chemical specialties. The course covers topics such as hydrocarbons, their functional derivatives, heterocyclic compounds, biomolecules and spectroscopy of organic compounds. Addition, substitution and elimination reactions, radical reactions, as well as the synthesis and practical use of organic molecules are considered in detail. This course will help students gain a solid foundation of knowledge in the field of organic chemistry and will acquaint students with advanced studies of modern organic chemistry. The course will consist of video lectures, lecture material, tasks in the form of test questions to check progress of students.


To take this course students need knowledge in the field of Inorganic Chemistry, Analytical and Physical Chemistry.
